Map Themed Gift Guide for the Map Lover

Map Themed Gift Guide: I admit it I have a bit of a map obsession. Regular readers to this blog will know that I’ll cover almost anything I can in a map !
Personally I think maps are beautiful, fascinating and personal. They are great for sparking memories of special places and vacations.
A lot of the ordinary can be transformed into awesome with a bit map pimping or map decoupage (ie my Ikea lamp hack). They can be used to personalise a space or object by using maps of places that are special to you.
By the map lovers or those with wanderlust something special this Christmas.  Check out this map themed gift guide.
As my family and regular readers of this blog can testify I firmly believe map decor doesn’t have to be confined to the walls. There are loads of ways you can accessorise your home and life with maped themed goodies.
Check out my map table mats, personalised map chairs and Ikea map table.
Upcycle a boring Ikea table with a world map and turning it into a fantastic map table.
In this map themed gift guide I have gathered a list of some great gift ideas for the map lovers in your life.

7.MT Map washi tape
I’ve admitted it before I have a bit of a washi tape problem. (I even had to make a washi tape holder for my collection.) However I believe that you can never have too much washi tape and this map version has to be one of my favs.
